Solved Scan to get this app

Post by Guardian-Angel January 4th 2022, 1:25 am

Hello

This QR code appears at the bottom of my portal page however several people have advise me it doesn't work.

Scan to get this app Captu731

When scanning, a message says this site cannot be found. Is it linked to an incorrect site? Where can I check in the AP?

Is there a link explaining how it works, I don't even recall adding that to the forum.



Thanks.

Dear @Guardian-Angel

that QR code is something that was added manually for sure by an administrator and that relied on an external service to work. So for the working problem we can't really support you, but for where to find it: it is a widget that you added in your portal at the end of the page Wink

Go to ACP > Modules > Portal & Widgets > Portal management, select the portal and click on Structure. Then click on the Delete next to it in order to remove it, then save :rose:

@Niko thank you for the information. I was asked to take over the forum because the previous administrator did not log on for more than 6 months so it makes sense that it was done prior to my arrival because I didn't remember adding it.

Is it possible to add it with a correct link and if so how?

This is what's in the widget now.

Code:
<a href="http://postimage.org/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="https://2img.net/h/s13.postimg.cc/kkraucc9v/ad242597_24e4_4889_a993_eaf76fbb6cad.png" border="0" alt="" /></a>

Thank you!

With correct link what do you mean? What was it supposed to be?
I think just a regular image without any page to open right? Wink

When I modify the widget, that code is in there that I posted.

I'm thinking I need a correct code linking to my forum?

@Guardian-Angel you'd have to make a new QR code in order to change where the scans take you and your users. You can search the web for free qr codes and create one as you wish it to be.

Have a look at these results that may help you.

@TheCrow Thank you for the info. I was playing with it last night while I waited for a reply here in case it couldn't be done by forumotion.

I can't figure out how to get it on our forum. I can create it, add the forumotion logo, I can download as a picture, but it doesn't give me a code I can insert when creating a widget.

Any ideas?

TY!

@Guardian-Angel I am getting confused, what do you want to do exactly?

As @TheCrow said, just find an external provider that allows you to create a QRCode (Simply google "Create a QRCode online" and at the end they will provide you the code that you can use. Easy Peasy :rose:

This is the Scan the App widget that has incorrect information from a previous administrator who is no longer around.

This is the QR code I created. How do I get the proper information into the widget when it doesn't give me a code, I only get a picture of the QR code. It works if I scan the picture on my phone, but how to I get it in the widget so it shows on our forum??

This is what's on the forum, but it's wrong. I want to replace it with the correct one I generated.

Download the image and Re-upload it on servimg..
or.. copy the image-link and then add it in the content of the widget using the image button as you just did here in your previous post Embarassed

For example:
Code:
[img]https://i.servimg.com/u/f89/19/65/94/67/qr-cod11.png[/img]

If you want to resize it you can specify it in the image-button of the editor, or eventually when you upload the image on servimg, where you can specify the re-sizing :rose:

Google it and go to the site that offers a free code and get it and add to the widget.

Do you even know what it was original suppose to do?

You scan the QR code with your phone. It takes you to the forum and creates an app on your phone.

Thanks for the help.
